P.G. DEPARTMENT OF LAW:
The Master degree in Law was started in the year 1960-61 as M.L. Degree course. After becoming part of the Bangalore University in 1976, the P.G. Department off Law has been offering LL.M programme in 5 different branches with an intake of 10 students under the general admission policy laid down by the Government and 2 students per branch under payment seats category with enhanced fees. The LL.M programme in Business Law, Labour, Capital and Law, Environment and Legal Order, Criminal law and Constitution and Legal order has been a story of great success. A majority of the students who have passed out the LL.M., programme are in different positions of life like judges, leading lawyers, academicians bureaucrats and corporate advisors. The programme utilizes the services of a few leading practitioners in addition to the regular teaching and seminar work conducted by the faculty members.
UNIVERSITY LAW COLLEGE
The Government Law College, like a river, has had a small beginning and spread pluming borrowed feathers in a rented building and borrowed furniture. The erstwhile Government of Mysore was pleased to start a Law College on July 1, 1948 known as the Government Law College. By an order dated. 19.6.1976, the Government Law College was transferred to Bangalore University and since then the college is known as University Law College, Bangalore. The University Law College, Bangalore has been offering LL.B., programme. The LL.B., course initially was of 2 yrs and later became a course of 3 yrs. However, the 5 yrs full-time degree course was introduced by the Bangalore University since 1986-87. The law students are trained to gain confidence in their profession and make them suitable to any kind of profession that come in their way. To realize this objective each year the ULC has been admitting 100 students to each of the semesters from first to fifth year. As the trend depicts, the admission of girls in each of the five years of LL.B programme is more than that of boys in the last five years. Apart from the regular classroom teaching the University Law College provides each student skills in the following areas:
Initiating each student right from the first year to learn and cultivate the required skills in mooting. With this in view, in the last 11 years the ULC has been conducting a Moot Court Competition. This national event is at present funded by the Bangalore University. All the best teams from the law schools and other law colleges of India take part in this event. We are proud to announce that in this year as many as 24 teams across the country have taken part. This event gives an opportunity for every student to see, to take part and associate in the entire event in different capacities. The training thus gained has been a great success story in producing outstanding mooters of national and international repute. In addition, the college team has been taking part consistently in the Texan International Environmental law Moot, Vienna Arbitration Moot, Hong Kong Arbitration Moots, Manfred Lacs International Space Law Moot, W.T.O Moot and such other prestigious international moots. Our students also have been taking active part and are involved in every prestigious, national, regional and state level moots without exception.
Legal aid and literacy programme:
This is one of the components of the LL.B programme which the ULC puts its heart and soul in its realization. Students of the fourth and fifth year LL.B are taken to villages and made to enquire into the deficiencies prevailing in the villages through a scientific questionnaire. This includes, the day to day problems facing them, their level of literacy and the lack of legal knowledge. Through this method the students in these villages ascertain their problems. In this programme a group of students assisted by a staff member would provide the necessary advice tackle the routine legal, social and economic problems facing them. University Law College has been consistently holding this programme since the introduction of the 5 years LL.B programme in the year 1985-86.
Another component of legal education is court and jail visit. The students of the 4 and 5 year are made to visit courts and the central prison on appointed days to observe the proceedings of the Court and record their observations in diary for submission. This compulsory exercise provides students to get to know first hand information about the functioning of the courts and application of substantive and procedural laws. In addition this works also assist and help/her to know the conditions of the prisoners and the relevant rules applicable to them.
Students of the ULC during vacation are encouraged to work in law firms to gain skills required in t h e process of drafting and giving legal opinions on various matters. We are pleased to announce before this august body that our students in addition to carrying on internship in prestigious law firms of India have also done internship in the Minsitry of External Affairs, Indian Academy of International Law, N.H.R.C and the Red Cross, The Indian Law Institute, New Delhi, besides doing internship under recognised advocates and NGOs.
